A voyage in a hot air balloon can be one of the most romantic experiences of a lifetime and a unique way to celebrate your engagement or marriage.

In the predominantly rural county of Cumbria, home to the Lake District National Park and beautiful scenery, it’s easy to understand why Virgin Balloon Flights’ pilot in Cumbria, Phil Claridge, witnessed a staggering 7 proposals on board last season and said this number is increasing year on year!

With stunning views of the Cumbrian countryside beneath the basket, what finer way to say "I Love You" and celebrate a proposal or marriage than by blissfully drifting 6000 feet in the air?

So what does a Virgin Balloon Flights ticket to the sky include?

You and your special someone can look forward to around an hour in the air over one of 100 launch sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, including Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria.

You will complete your experience with a traditional champagne toast and receive a flight certificate signed by Sir Richard Branson and your pilot. What’s more, you'll receive a Virgin Gift Pack including a shoulder bag, compact binoculars, cap, pen, keyring, pre-flight DVD, plus an Italian-made engraved crystal champagne flute for an everlasting keepsake of your special journey… All tickets come in a luxury wallet with a souvenir brochure and offer 12 months to book your flight (flying season is March to October).

A Virgin Balloon Flight makes a perfect present, too, so go on, wrap this gorgeous gift in a ribbon and make your partner’s day, or pop it on your gift list to inspire your wedding guests.

Create memories to last a lifetime!
